    Dear Oscar :

    I enjoyed your poem, because it talks about one of my favorite sports, soccer.

    One thing that stands out for me is that you threw in some Spanish words in there. I believe that makes the poem more interesting and it engages the reader and keeps them hooked. It is also very creative because it shows what type of languages and…[Read more]

    Sean, I enjoyed reading your post because I feel the same way you do, not just about Metal, but all other subgenres of Rock. People see it as violent music, like you said or call it ¨music for emos¨ or for goths, not that there is anything wrong with them, but I feel like anyone could listen to it. I have always stuck with Rock music not only b…[Read more]

  • Hello Jillian, I enjoyed your poem and I enjoy these photos. Although this park could look scary at night, it looks like the perfect place to go for a run! We have a few parks here in Austin that have trees surrounding them like this but I do not think they look as peaceful as Prospect Park. You take good photographs, I especially liked how you…[Read more]

  • Hello Zariya, I enjoyed reading your bio! I feel like we are the same when it comes to being too nice and forgiving, but it is always good and costs nothing to be kind to others. I also enjoy playing the same sports as you, basketball and soccer, but mostly soccer! I look forward to reading more of your posts about you and your siblings.

    Mt. Bonnell is a famous landmark in Austin. It is pretty peaceful and has good views of Lake

    • Dear Orlando, I really like the pictures that you took because it reminds me of the times I have been there. I like going to Mount Bonnell too although I just don’t really like going up the stairs, but i agree with you on the part where you said “You get to take pictures wherever you want.” It seems very great when you get to go on a sunny day because the view is amazing.

    • Your pictures have good quality, hopefully one day I can take a long peaceful walk there.

    • Hello Orlando! My name is Sante Di Sera and I am a highschool senior from Salt Lake City, Utah. While you say that you aren’t all too good at any subject, I believe your writing is honest and conversational. With more time to learn and enjoy school, I’m sure you’ll grow to discover what you love. I think it’s amazing that you care so much about stray animals and I’m sure – if you wanted – there is a local animal shelter that you can volunteer at and help animals. Best of luck in your future endeavours!
